On Alan Wake 2 PC

A post to a thread called "Can we get a straight answer about the PC version?" on the Alan Wake Community Forums has a response to concerns on that topic from Remedy Entertainment's Markus Maki. The vagueness of his response is not very reassuring for PC gamers concerned they won't get to play Remedy's upcoming psychological thriller (which Remedy says is the first season of a bigger story), on their chosen platform:
Hey all,

I'm a PC gamer at heart (have a Core i7, Radeon 4890, 5.1 audio setup at home) so I do appreciate your concerns.

Unfortunately all I can say at this point is that we're focusing all our efforts on the 360 version and will be making comments in regards to the PC at a later in time.

My biggest issue with Microsoft is that Abortion of a service called "Games for Windows Live!".

If ever there was an example of Microsoft blatantly screwing PC gaming over, this is it.

What does GFW Live! really do for us? Achievements? If anything, that just proves how out of touch they are with the PC online community. Add to that that the only way to get DLC for GFWL games is with that F-ed up purchasing model which I fail to see the "point" of at all you have a cespool of complete gabage. The Points system no more "secure" than the credit card. In fact, MS keeps your card on file in your account!

Then there's the fact that you can't use DLC (Fallout3) unless you're logged into GFW Live! (I know that you can move the file manually to the offline mod folder, but it SHOULDN'T be that way). Then, if you bought it on Steam, you have to be logged into that service as well.

I'm failing to see any benefit to the service whatsoever--want a nightmare: a games for Windows game on Steam. I think MS intentionally did that to try and make Steam user's frustrated with an otherwise excellent service.

Shame is valve really has done a great job, it's usually when the publishers insist on tossing their own copy protection into the game (rather than relying on Valve's mechanism) where things really screw up.

Yet another example of rather than doing something right, they choose to just do something, and screw PC gaming over in the process. While I don't agree that PC gaming is "dead," I will agree that MS sure isn't do anything to expand and grow the platform in it's areas of strength...they're just doing what they always do...drop something in the fray, and will probably end up buying someone that does it right later on, then re-brand it as GFWL 2.0.

Ok, I'll go back on my meds now. Jaw is still killing me for having my wisdom teeth out on Friday.
